Sharktopus - Corman Commentary: Designing Sharktopus

In this excerpt from the Sharktopus DVD commentary track, legendary b-movie king Roger Corman explains when it's best to use CG effects and when it's best to go practical. Available on Blu-ray & DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment on March 15.An eight-tentacled nightmare hybrid of shark and octopus, "S-11" was created by genetic scientist Nathan Sands (Eric Roberts) as the U.S. Navy's next super-weapon. But when its control implants are damaged during a training experiment off the Mexican coast, the beast escapes to Puerto Vallarta to sample the local fare -- bikini babes, jet-skiers, and spring-breakers. With the ocean terror now out of control and seemingly invincible, a ragtag group -- comprised of a hotshot mercenary, an investigative reporter, and Sand's biomechanical engineer daughter -- have come together to stop the unholy beast from turning a seaside tourist resort into the ultimate human buffet. But it won't be easy: it possesses problem-solving intelligence, attacks without mercy or warning -- it even has the ability to walk on land. Not to mention a decided affinity to snack on bungee jumpers... Kerem Bursin and Sara Malakul Lane co-star, with a hilarious cameo by Corman himself.
